Design Director


Joe Preston is an associate creative director living and working in Oregon and Washington State. He has 20 years of graphic design, art direction, interactive design, motion graphics, photography, video and music production experience.

His work is strongly grounded in narrative and driven by the belief that the best designs provide simple solutions for complicated problems. He loves doing good work that helps good people love their work. And he's a people person who prefers working side-by-side with clients and leading his teams by example. He is an instructor at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

In his spare time he is in the mountains. He has toured the country in bands since he was 16 years old. His best friend is a Boston Terrier named Matilda.
